i picked up the dvds
watched the documentary last night
all i have to say is: 'wow'
i'd say iceland is due for a tourism boost
and that whoever put this dvd together knew exactly what they were doing and it's beautiful to watch
Where'd u come across the dvd? Everything I've read says it isn't coming out until the 20th
Arena Stage, Roskilde Festival '06, Sigur Rós are coming out for the 4th time to meet the ginormous applause and cheering of the audience, 10 whole minutes after they have finished playing.
I couldn't utter anything for a good 2-3 hours after this show, nothing worth while anyway. Something I will remember for the rest of my life.
"( )" will forever be one of the greatest albums of all time in my opinion.
"Hafsol" is a live regular.
Thinking of "I Gaer" as a B-side feels so ridiculous. That song alone makes me close my eyes and see a combination of everything I love about my favourite bands washing over me like gigantic waves.
This band is what I would choose to see and hear if I got the choice of choosing the soundtrack of my last minutes alive.
And finally: "Popplagið" live=what will be played as the world ends and the afterlife unfolds.
Baroness did you hear about the Merce Cunningham dance project they played for? They got Sigur Ros to play at the Melbourne Arts Centre only a week ago, they used both Sigur Ros' music and Radiohead as well. I missed out because it was sold out, so I was pretty shattered, but my friend said it wasn't that great, purely because of the dancing.. whereas Sigur Ros were cool, they played music boxes and that sort of thing.
Been lucky enough to see them live three times, and each time has been better than the last. However I think large open air venues are the best place to see them, their music to me always evokes thoughts of countrysides and large open air spaces not cramped indoor venues.
